I really love that you are around to share information about Ares. I have found that a great number of people (on Tumblr particularly, but in "real life" as well) seem to try and chip away at who he intrinsically is to make him more "palatable". Seeing someone who worships him as a whole and doesn't ignore his penchant for brutal savagery and violence makes me smile.

I really enjoyed your post on Ares, you used fantastic sources and argued your case well. I wonder if people think that way of Ares is because of what we know of ancient Greek society where women were predominantly treated poorly. So I'm wondering if Ares is supposed to be the antithesis of Greek society. "Greeks weren't supposed to have battle rage, that's barbarian nonsense. One should be like Athena, and have tactics and shiny armour!" "Treat women with respect, bah!" (note: not bashing gods)

mostly I think it’s just a case of an abnormally single-focused deity. Most of the Greek gods have a lot of different fields. Ares is war. That’s it. Just war. That’s what he cares about. That’s exclusively what he cares about. So why would he care who the fuck you are as long as war’s involved? You think he’s gonna go “ooh I have a whole bunch of soldiers here to bring around to my cause and use to cause lots of brilliant mayhem, but they’re FEMALE soldiers, nevermind”?

Unlikely.

I’ll point out, for the record, that nobody has yet to take me up on that challenge to provide evidence to the contrary re: feminist Ares.

To be honest, the heteronormative and fertility shit is why I abandoned the idea of neo-Wicca and Wicca when I first got into paganism. I don't want kids. I have a fear of pregnancy. And then there's the whole "all deities are aspects of the God and Goddess" and that was the final nail in the coffin. So, yeah, your feelings about the whole thing resonate with me pretty well. I didn't know Gardner was a confirmed homophobe, so that's pretty gross.

The memoirs of his coreligionists from that time quote him as saying things like homosexual men can’t be witches, “passing power from man to man” is why the Templars “fell into sin”, etc. Google is useful in it.

Can you talk about the concept of hell in Judaism?

littledoomwitch:

well, uh. there isn’t a Hell in Judaism. period.

the absolute closest we get is the Lake of Fire, where Azazel is forced to stay. that’s it.

Man it’s terrible how much the Wiccans express their Wicca, isn’t it?

They’re always, like, living by the values of the God and Goddess and promoting the stuff they care about shaping their lives on their teachings and shit.

Like damn, what are they thinking o.o

except the worship of Ares isn’t inherently misogynistic the way Wicca is

nice false equivalency there

Now I’m genuinely curious… How do you exactly view Ares? I may be viewing him wrong, but… From what I’ve read, I’ve seen him as the portrait for patriarchy. Maybe that’s not the right way to put it… But manly? Not really caring for the equality of women? Excuse my wording, I’m not sure how else to say it. I’m actually curious about what you think.

Thank you! I remembered seeing a post that talked about Ares… I’ve read through it, and I understand now. It’s actually really cool. I know you’re not stupid. You’re really intelligent when it comes to Greek Mythology. How long have you been studying, exactly? Do you have any books to recommend? Heck, websites?

we still aren’t friends and I still don’t like you
